In it he has- characterized notable figures in official life in Washington in the guise of “fish” and “clams.” This aquarium is actually a large painting, which gives to the onlooker the illusion of gazing into a tremendous fish bowl. . A seaport will immediately adjoin the deep sea ball room. where a cabaret performance, under the direction ot Miss Marjorie Lowe, will be given throughout the evening, with Mr. Tom Brahaney acting as master of ceremonies. Here, tables will be arranged about the room in night club style, and a continuous performance will be carried on, with talented musicians, singers, and dancers, practically all in costume, taking part. Pageant of Rare Beauty Feature of Ball The ball will begin at 10 o’clock, and promptly at 11 o'clock the pageant, “Neptune’s Review,” which will be in two parts, under the direction of Mrs. Marie Moore Forrest, and Mr. Percy J. Burrell, will begin, with the entrance of the members of the floor committee in brilliant costumes representing tropical fish with silver bodies and long flowing sleeves of vivid hue to give the effect of fins. King Neptune will immediately follow them in a golden chariot drawn by his two sea horses, Theodore Tiller 2d and Carl Carlson, who will wear giant horses’ heads. A bevy of mermaids, wearing shimmery, close-fitting chiffon costumes, with long flowing golden tresses, and pages in seafoam costumes of taffeta and tulle, made somewhat in ballet style, will be in this group. The “Dance of the Golden Dolphins” will follow, and next will come the “Pearls of Great Price,” a group of three beautiful maidens attired in costumes of crystal and silver, carrying clusters of silver balloons. An amusing and grotesque feature will follow, a deep-sea dragon of vivid coloring ;* and other features of the ball will be the groups representing.“ Ulysses Evading the Sirens,” which will give opportunity for beautiful costume effects; the “Birth of Aphrodite;” and the “Ballet of the Sea,” when waves nvmphs, and sea horses will take part; and there will be a “Fantasy of the Sea,” which will prove tremendously enter taining. The program will close with the “Flight of Sea Gqjls,” directed by Marian Chase, with a group of dancers. The grand march will follow, when prizes will be awarded to those wearing the most picturesque costumes. General dancing will follow until the wee small hours of the morning. * * * Dinner Tonight The apostolic delegate, Most Rev. P.

Washington Fashions By WILMA LA VILLE We seem to have the jacket • habit. A prominent store man i told me a year or so ago that I any dress would sell better with a jacket. I thought at the time that he exaggerated, but I’ve decided that his words are truer by the day. We wear jackets with all types of clothes. It’s almost unusual to buy an evening dress without a jacket that matches, or without a sep arate one to go with it on oc casion. Sports clothes must have jackets, suits of all kinds are good for street wear, and afternoon clothes have jackets more often than not so that they can play more than one role. Colors Contrast The jacket of the moment goes with a silk suit that is worn under a coat now, and that will walk alone on the first warm day. It often makes the suit convertible into two or more types. If the dress or blouse is sleeveless, then it may be worn for informal occasions after dark. The addition of the jacket makes it into a street or afternoon costume, if it is of a suitable material. Some times both jacket and dress have long sleeves, in which case you have two separate cos tumes. a practical idea, if your wardrobe is too limited for your needs. Sleeves Are Varied The stores are full of suits of these types, so we don’t offer the accompanying illustration as something new and startling, but rather as a good example of a popular and practical fash ion, because it is smart and wearable. It is of navy pure dye silk crepe, the blouse of a striped material in rust and eggshell, spiart contrast with navy. The blouse has long sleeves that show below the three-quarter sleeves of the jacket, so that the dress is equally good without the jacket. The bow is on the blouse, but shows outside the wrap-around jacket when it is on. Notice how well the bias-cut, skirt hangs and that the belt is on the dress, Xor further conven,- SATURDAY—FEBRUARY ft—l 932 Dean of Corps and Wife Are Guests The Italian Ambassador and j Nobil Donna Antonietta de ' Martino were the ranking guests at a luncheon given to daj’ by Count and Countess de Thiene at the Carlton.

After vainly trying for months to wiggle its way over the hill tops, only to get stuck in a tree or somep’n, the moon managed to make th e grade somehow and—well, here it is in Wash ington! Kate beat the moon to the National Capi tal last night by several hours, landing at Union Station at dusk. And was there a turnout at the village depot to f r KATE SMITH welcome home the lil’ gal who made good in a great big way in the Big Town! You tell it! All the Smiths were there, of course—and a lot of folks whose names are not in the telephone directory under the “esses.” As Kate stepped from the train the Training School Band blared out the strains of the famous Kate Smith theme song, and from the assembled Kate Smith Clubbers there arose a mighty shout that drawned the chuffing and puffing of a score of locomotives. And wasn’t “our Kate” sweet! Her face was wreathed in smiles, and she shouted “HEL-10, every body!” to a fare-ye-well. All of which was according to Hoyle—or the publicity department of Co lumbia. Escorted by Legionnaires and motorcycle police, Kate was whisked through the streets of her native city to her mother’s apart ment in Connecticut Avenue. Lest we forget. Kate will appear this week at RKO-Keith’s, and will broadcast from WMAL. Organ Recital Arthur Poister, internationally known professor of organ at Uni versity of Redlands, Calif., broad cast an organ recital from Christ Church, Alexandria, last night.
